    I know I’m very late to this series. Heck, everyone’s already ranting and raving about Ignite Me and I’m still trying to wrap my brain around the first one. 
      I avoided this book for quite a while. I had heard good things, I’d heard bad and I wasn’t sure what to think about it. Turns out, it was pretty fantastic. The characters, especially Juliette, just drag you into this complicated and sad world. And all the while all you want is to see Juliette get out of this somehow, live happily ever after with Adam. 
     But here’s the thing, because I am so late to the game, I KNOW something else is coming. Something that may potentially change my mind about Adam and the creepy Warner. But, I don’t want it to. I like Adam and I don’t know that there is anything that can redeem Warner after this book.
     Needless to say, this book series is definitely going to take me for a ride. And any book series that can make your feelings change over and over again, and make you keep questioning the truth is good. I’m looking forward to continuing this series and my biggest complaint is how ugly and terrible the first book cover is. I prefer hardcover books but, my goodness, Shatter Me’s cover left something to be desired. I’m so hoping that they’ll reprint the hardcover with the better cover. Silly and petty, but still, this is a true feel.
